Hero Arts Peonies Greeting on a2z

Happy 2019 everyone!!

A new year has begun, it is time for new hopes and new outlook!  

Ever since I was little, I've always known that the Peonies symbolize prosperity, so what better image to use on my New Year greeting to you, and for the new challenge Anything Goes on a2z Scrapbooking.

I gold heat embossed the bloom, the flower bud, and the leaves on watercolor paper, watercolored them and die cut.  To further emphasize the message of wealth I chose a golden yellow tone, and I added a light wash of glimmer metallic gold ink for the shine.

I created a shimmery golden background using stencil and ink spray.

The sentiment is gold heat embossed as well.  To add interest to the banner, I used a 1/4 inch hole punch and created an 'inverted round' corner.  Not sure if that's a term, but that's the best way could describe it.  :D

Be sure to hop over to a2z Scrapbooking Supplies to check out the beautiful inspiration project my team mates created for you, and join the challenge.
